Artist Statement

Sung-Chih CHEN(B. 1978 in Nantou Taiwan) graduated from Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts, Tainan National University of the Arts(MFA), with emphasis in mixed media installation. Previous works include mixed creations using ready-made objects. These ready-made life materials are randomly assembled, combined, and transformed in order to present something different from the original rough and cold material quality with a delicately blended complex psychological element. These art creations, therefore, are given warmth and poetic meanings. In the past years, there were several participations in artist-in-residence in international studio and exchange programs in Korea(MMCA Goyang Art Studio), Britain (Visiting Arts London), Egypt(The Townhouse Gallery), France(Cité International des Arts), and Taiwan(The Stock 20). Previous artworks used to receive 2013 Espace Louis Vuitton Taipei Audition- First Prize, 2012 35 Visual Artist Support Winner , The 12th Visual Arts Prize of Li Chun-Shan Foundation, 2004 Taishin Arts Award – Top 7 of Visual Arts, 2003 Taipei Arts Award Best-selected. He lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan.
